I began listening to this for the first (and only) time while driving. It was the first hot day of the year, which meant that I had my window down. Goth-y, electroclash rock poured from my speakers because of this, and embarrassment poured through my mind. “Oh, how I hope that nobody I know pulls up next to me while I have this playing,” I thought to myself. “I don’t want to mention this moment to anyone!” Just as I thought this, one of my cousins drove by—perhaps the only person whom I know who would take me to task for listening to this utter crap. “That was too close,” I told myself, as I ejected the CD and hid it away.
